The announcement was posted on the official EVOS SG MY Facebook page, revealing that the 27-year old EXP laner has returned to pro play.

“Look forward to our games and send the team your love and support,” they wrote. “P/S: No, this is not a prank,”

This isn’t the first time Soul announced his unretirement. During MPL SG Season 1, the EXP laner returned during the playoffs to help the team win the first ever MPL SG championship, just a few months after announcing his retirement.

This is definitely not the last time we’ll see the star EXP laner in the Land of Dawn.

Recently, it was announced that he will be part of the Singaporean contingent competing at the 31st SEA Games. He will be playing alongside teammates Remas “Remaniscent” Ker Zhen Hong, Basil Lim “Seilah” Dao Ze, Adam “Adammir” Chong, and Akihiro “JPL” Furusawa.

MPL SG Season 3 resumes on April 23, where EVOS SG will take on Zion Esports at 5 p.m. GMT+8.
